Workshops ($10 per hour workshop, per student)


Planets & Fizzies (Pre-K - 2nd)  

This workshop focuses on the eight planets in our solar system. Students will learn about the planets with our 4 billion to 1 scale solar system model, as well as get to color their own planet. They will then get to have a chance to launch a rocket, and learn how they owrk.

Life In Space (3rd - 5th Grade)

NASA is entering a new era of human space exploration.  By the 2030s, NASA scientists currently plan to send astronauts to Mars.  A Mars voyage will take seven to eight months, and cover about 300,000,000 miles.  Today's students who learn how to live and work on these extended space journeys are the space travelers of tomorrow.  Excite your students about the possibilities of space exploration with this program designed in accordance with Arizona's 3rd through 5th grade standards.

Scrubber (6th - 8th Grade)

Experience the tension of the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission as your students take on the roles of Mission Control engineers, trying to figure out how to clean the air in the capsule before the astronauts suffocate. Student teams research, design and build model air scrubber filter units using only the few materials available to the astronauts. They then test their designs on a mock-up of the air circulation unit from the Apollo spacecraft.
